Newly Converted Chevy K5 Blazer-E  

What Are EV Retrofit Kits?

It's a happy day for people who have gas-powered cars but are ready to take a mini-dive into the world of electric vehicles. Thanks to EV retrofit kits, you can convert your normally gas-powered old model into a high-rolling electric vehicle. That might sound too good to be true, but it's already happening, thanks to GM.

Chevy to Sell EV Retrofit Kits in 2021

After years of prototypes, Chevrolet will begin rolling out its retrofit kits in the latter half of 2021. Thanks to the upcoming holidays, Chevrolet will be celebrating their new product in conjunction with normally impressive holiday sales. That's something to celebrate for people who want to get in on this opportunity to go green without spending as much green.

The kits are designed for auto hobbyists looking for a greener option without giving up the comfort of their current car. Installation, however, will mainly be done by certified specialists. They will have knowledge of vehicles from the inside out and know exactly how to install the components. While the kits give you just about everything needed to convert your old model into an electric car, Chevrolet recommends that you be ready to invest a little extra if you run into a model-centric issue that requires more equipment.

The Chevy test model runs on electricity right now as we speak, and it only required a bit of tweaking from the steering column and powertrain. Naturally, every model is made with different components, and some EV retrofit kits will require more investment from you. However, if you're the kind of driver who loves working with automobiles, this is going to be a true Christmas gift to yourself.
